Interventions in Capitalism


As a research studio, this course is a combined studio production, critique, and seminar class that explores creative expression and creative thinking within and outside of capitalism. The goal of the course is to foster a space for unique research methods and hands on explorations of capitalism. Each student will explore the history, culture, theory and technology of capitalism through hands on making, individualized research, and discussion.

Potential areas of investigation may include: wearable computing, physical computing, interactive performance, social media interventions, tactical media, art science collaboration, material science, smart materials, artificial life, art activism, and serious game design.
